Meet The Team
Chief Executive Officer
Karen serves as Chief Executive Officer and has grown Taylor from a home-based business to a major industry competitor.
Karen earned a law degree from the Dickinson School of Law, and held positions as an Assistant District Attorney and as a labor attorney for the Department of Army, before venturing into the business arena.
Selected in 2010 to the Northeast PA Business Journal’s Top 25 Women in Business, she takes pride in being one of the few woman owned businesses in the energy sector.
Karen thoroughly enjoys books and wine, but not necessarily in that order.
Chief Operating Officer
Scott serves as the Chief Operating Officer and was part of the original team that founded the Taylor business model. As the ‘mad scientist’ of the executives, Scott was responsible for the creation and building of UtilityModule, EnergyAuctions, Energy Scorecard, UM mobile app, and several other internal platforms.
He is a graduate of Temple University (#goowls) and received his MBA from Mount St. Mary’s College. Scott enjoys traveling, but hardly ever takes a vacation, as well as golfing, but does it too poorly to play often.
Scott has founded several companies across technology, real estate and fashion, but always comes back to Taylor as his first.
Bill has served as President of Taylor since 2015 and has been part of the Taylor team since 2008. Known as the road warrior of the executive team, Bill spends most of his time driving from Boston to Washington to Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey, working with clients to structure procurement programs that will help stabilize budgets and keep utility costs under control. When not driving, he can often be found reviewing and or creating our clients’ budgets in UtilityModule.
Bill has both undergraduate and graduate degrees from Northeastern University and although he is the oldest of the group, he did not see the first baseball world series held on Huntington Avenue which later became Northeastern University.
Bill has been known to spend a “little” bit of time on the golf course but never enough time. When not working or golfing, he can be found with his wife Beth at the Pavilion on the campus of Villanova University or the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia watching the Villanova Wildcats basketball team, his adopted school after sending both of his daughters there. #Go cats!
Bill is also actively involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Senior Vice President of Sales
Jon has served as Senior Vice President of Sales since the beginning of 2017. Based on Taylor’s desire to do more with less, as SVP, Jon manages the business development efforts nationally, as well as the strategic relationships with our enterprise customers. Prior to Taylor, Jon was Senior Manager at EnerNOC and a Principal with Market Direct Energy. In both roles, he worked with Fortune 500 business to help customers define strategy and risk in various commodity markets. His work includes assessing opportunities for energy purchasing, demand management, energy monitoring, and regulatory risk.
Jon holds a B.A in Business Management from Gettysburg College and graduated from the Greater Boston Executive Program at MIT. Yes! That MIT.
Whenever possible, Jon seeks customers who enjoy fine dining and the joys of golf. When not at work with his Taylor family, Jon and his wife Liz are busy coaching or attending sporting events for their children, Charley and Rory.
Rudi has served as VP Operations of Taylor since mid 2017 and leads the Supplier Relations, Account Management, Customer Service and Solar and Renewable departments.
Rudi has been driving enterprise value with operational excellence and performance improvement for corporations and governments across the globe throughout his career. Prior to joining Taylor, Rudi lead the Solution Engineering team at EnerNOC, has launched new technology businesses in the US and supported the implementation of the Free Trade Agreement between Australia and the US. Rudi has built close client relationships and demonstrated expert proficiency in data analytics, business development, international trade and leading high performing teams.
Rudi is a CEM, LEED-AP, has an MBA from the Australian Graduate School of Management and a Bachelor of Economics from LaTrobe University in Melbourne, Australia.
Rudi is a father of twin boys (Alex and Blake) and an action sports enthusiast. His passion for skiing, windsurfing and cycling has taken him all over the world, including leading two private expeditions down the Colorado River though the Grand Canyon.
Chief Revenue Officer
Matt serves as Chief Revenue Officer and leads partnerships, acquisitions, new products and demand-based offerings and sales enablement as well as the strategic development of national and international sales channels.
Matt joined Taylor from Centrica Plc, the Global 500 energy and energy services company best known for its Direct Energy brand (4 million residential and 240,000 business customers in the US & Canada), where he spent nearly a decade. Matt held notable leadership roles with the Direct Energy Business and Centrica Business Solutions units, where he was formerly Vice President, Sales, working with business customers on various energy supply and demand side projects. Matt also has strong experience in mergers, acquisitions and finance with Grant Thornton, Roffe Swayne, and Exxon Mobil.
Matt holds a first-class honors BA in Business Studies and is a Fellow of the royally chartered Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and is a member of the Association of Chartered Accountants in the United States.
Despite having a ‘numbers’ background, Matt has spent most of his time deal-making in M&A or sales, so please don’t ask him a tax question. When not working, Matt and his wife Michelle are busy chasing after their son Mark who has just begun Karate. The Taylor team can attest to the poor quality of Matt’s golf game, though they kindly let him join anyway.
